The Perfect Game
Here’s a sweetly mannered sports movie with lots of heart that's ideal for introducing baseball traditions and vocabulary to young baseball fans. The setting is 1957 Monterrey, Mexico where former Cincinnati Reds ballboy Cesar (well played by Clifton Collins Jr.) expresses his love for baseball by coaching a local group of ragtag child ballplayers to play in the Little League World Series. "The Perfect Game" is based on a true story of the only “perfect game” in the league’s championship history. A “perfect game” in baseball happens when a pitcher never allows a runner from the other team to ever get on base.
Rated PG. 100 mins. (B-) (Three Stars)
